How to change Correl-ID on DB2 z/OS using DB2 Connect from Microfocus Enterprise Server?

Hello We are from Banco Santander Brasil. As a global project, we are moving some applications from z/OS mainframe environment to Microfocus Enterprise Server on Linux. Microfocus Enterprise Server product accesses DB2 z/OS through DB2 Connect v.11.5.5.1 with SB 13485. We need a solution to change the correl-id coming to DB2 z/OS to identify the transactions/jobs that are running in the Microfocus environment. The connection to DB2 is established at the start of Microfocus CICS regions, and maintains it as long as there are requests to execute transactions/jobs. Microfocus changes the SQL_ATTR_INFO_PROGRAMNAME field with the transid/jobname every run. However, we have verified that the correl-id arriving at DB2 z/OS is always the same - that is, it maintains the correl-id of the initial connection. As exposed on TS010192068 IBM case, DB2 Connect does not honor the change in the SQL_ATTR_INFO_PROGRAMNAME field on every run. We need an enhancement so that SQL_ATTR_INFO_PROGRAMNAME is modified on every run to make it possible to identify the job/transaction on DB2 z/OS. This maintenance is extremely important for monitoring the environment. Can you please consider this implementation in the next release of DB2 Connect?
